In its June issue, Editor & Publisher ran information regarding community newspapers. Based on statistics gathered by Reynolds Journalism Institute, it told us 77.4 percent of those surveyed read the newspaper for local news and information.
That is pleasing to us. We appreciate the loyalty our readers have shown us since we opened the doors some 134 years ago.
As other types of media enter the forum, that statistics tells us that people want their community newspaper and rely on what it is the newspaper offers them on a daily basis.
